Popped in for an impromptu lunch ... so glad we did. Perfect service, friendly staff, and the food is superb. Fabulous all round. Will be returning very soon ... oh, and some delightful art available to buy from local artists. Highly recommend you try this place!

We spent a lovely weeked in the Wild Thyme restaurant. The rooms were simple but comfortable. On arrival we were given delicious home made biscuits and fresh milk for tea. The host, Sally, was friendly and helpful, recommending places for us to eat in on our first night. We eat in the restaurant on the second night. The food was... More

We booked here for a birthday / engagement celebration evening. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food that we had was very tasty beautifully cooked and well presented. They added a personal touch writing congratulations on our desserts as we had got engaged that day.

We stayed at Wild Thyme last weekend after reading positive reviews. We stayed in the Gold room which is very clean and comfortably decorated, it's also quite quirky with sloping floors and ceiling beams due to the buildings age. The bathroom is large although you have to be careful in the shower if your tall. Nice quality amenities are also... More

The title says it all really. In all honesty this wasn't our first choice restaurant and we were due to eat at The Kingham Plough but this was closed for a refurb after we booked a weekend away. It was Emily Watkins herself who recommended Wild Thyme so we decided we would be daft not to follow her recommendation and... More

This is a real find in Chipping Norton. The atmosphere is very friendly, welcoming and informal. The food was excellent with fresh local ingredients and generous portions. The prices are fair and the wines good and not excessive in mark up. We will be back - if we can get in!

Right from walking into the restaurant the evening couldn't have got better. Lovely intimate setting, attentive but discreet staff who made you feel welcome and special, great choices of wine reasonably priced and fantastic food. Only downside we really couldn't squeeze in one of the fabulous sounding desserts. We will definitely be back - thanks for a really lovely evening.

There isn't enough space to once again sing the praises of this wonderful little restaurant. Went last night with my husband and daughter to finish of a week of celebrating for hubby's 60th birthday. Although they were very full, the service did not suffer at all, with everybody being very attentive. The food was once again exceptional. All in 15... More
